Libec TH-650DV Tripod (Heiwa) Pan locked

Post by Peter Copestake » Tue Jul 04, 2017 12:11 pm

We have had this tripod in use for several years. (Best one for its weight I've ever had the pleasure of using)
Yesterday I took it out of the boot and found the head locked solid. I thought it doesn't have a locking screw for pan only a very small knurled knob that I had never touched and couldn't move yesterday. Using pliers on it today I find it has loosened the pan and all seems well.
Seems I need a pair of pliers in the boot.
Anyone else found problems with this tripod?
